Community Cat Program

For residents living in Sullivan County, we offer a TNR (trap-neuter-return) called the Community Cat Program.  We offer traps for rent with a refundable deposit of $50. We offer our expert advice on trapping and releasing, and set you up with an appointment to drop off your community cats for spay/neuter. There they will be altered, ear tipped, and given a rabies vaccination. You will pick up the cats and release them back in their natural habitat. This program is crucial to keeping our community cats safe and preventing overpopulation. Application forms available under the “Community Cat Form” page on this website. For any questions you may call the shelter at 423-279-2741.

Food Pantry

We will have designated food pantry pick up times and delivery dates! Please contact Appalachia Mission Pawsible on Facebook or at

Don’t Breed a Bully

The Animal Shelter of Sullivan County has noticed a LARGE volume of these breeds being surrendered to the shelter and we want to help!

For every bully/pit/pit mix/ beautiful block head the shelter adopts or sends to rescue, WE will “spay it forward” and pay to spay or neuter one bully breed in the community.

So show us your beautiful, block headed bullies and pitties on Facebook in the comments for our Don’t Breed a Bully Post!

Want to submit your beautiful block head to be on the “spay it forward” list?  Show us your beautiful bully, tag #dontbreedabully, fill out the online application or contact the shelter at 423-279-2741 to get on our “spay it forward” waiting list.  We will schedule appointments in the order requests are received each time a bully is rescued or adopted!  Remember to advocate for our beautiful shelter bullies to help promote them to get adopted or rescued faster!
